of the dictator kim jung un. >> this is against the u.n. security council resolutions and we are monitoring the situation closely. and working very closely with the self-defense force and the ministry of defense. this is a dangerous situation. and we do not support those actions right now by north korea. bill: steven yates, sir, good morning and welcome back here to america's newsroom. it's been some time since we talked about this issue. now it's back and on the plate. >> any time you are dealing with long range missile capability it will be a concern. we have thousands of troops stationed in japan and korea. there is talk of being able to reach los angeles or the western coast. no north korean test so far has reached that near abroad. bill: what would korea want to prove with this launch? >> always dangerous to try to climb into the mind of a north korean leader. but there would have to be a domestic component to the situation. there are important elections taking place in japan on the 16th and south korea on the 19th of this month. well within the range of this test that is scheduled to

in in a way. we continu that way. martha: ambassador john bolton, former ambassador to the u.n. and a fox news contributor joins me now. good to see you. >> good morning, martha. martha: we've heard from the administration that the loading of these weapons basically would be a red line that could not be crossed. a lot of questions where the line exists. i wonder what you think about leon panetta's statement there, is he trying to court of cool the heels on this situation a little bit? >> it may simply be that the administration never had adequate plans to do something, once the risk of bashar al-assad's use of chemical weapons really approached putting them into combat situations. the absence of intelligence doesn't tell you anything, as the saying goes, the absence of evidence is not evidence of absence. what bashar al-assad is doing with the weapons may simply be hidden from us, not that he's not doing anything. the real question is making sure that those weapons don't get outside of syria, where they could be used by terrorist worldwide. at least that's what i think the highest u.s. priorit
